ABM UK has been awarded a further five-year contract with the Greater London Authority (GLA) to provide City Hall – one of the capital’s most iconic buildings – with office and public area cleaning and porterage services.
ABM will deliver daily housekeeping, cleaning, porterage, hygiene and laundry services as part of the contract for The GLA’s headquarters in Southwark and also their demised space within the London Fire Brigade’s HQ.
The retention will see ABM’s collaborative approach to embedding sustainable practices continuing, including the use of water-based cleaning solutions and products which are 100 per cent environmentally-friendly. In addition, as a high-profile building, maintaining a clean, safe and welcoming environment will continue to be at the top of the company’s agenda.
John McPherson, ABM UK Managing Director, commented: “We’re incredibly proud to have retained this contract and to be paying the London Living Wage as a minimum to each member of the team.
“We look forward to working closely with the GLA to provide an adaptable, customer-focused service which ensures that its staff and visitors experience a safe, clean and well-run environment.”
The win follows several recent contract awards for prestigious local government and commercial office, banking and finance environments.
